I bought the Alice in Chains Greatest Hits SACD last weekend and have been blown away by how much better the stereo track is than the CD. There is absolutely no comparison. "No Excuses", my favorite Alice in Chains song, is phenomenal on the SACD. The CD is weak by comparison. After A/B'ing the SACD and CD several times, I started wondering if a CD-R copy of the Alice in Chains SACD recorded in the analog domain (can't record from SACD in the digital domain) would sound better than the pre-recorded CD. Has anyone copied SACDs to CD-Rs? How good are the resulting CD-Rs sonically in comparison to the SACDs and pre-recorded CDs? Since I have the SACDs, I have no real reason to copy them to CD-Rs, but I am curious about what the results might be. I also wonder how minidiscs recorded from SACDs would sound in comparison to minidiscs recorded from CDs. I have never recorded to CD-Rs or minidiscs in the analog domain, but I imagine a little tweaking would be required to get the sound just right.
